Humans of Bombay, a social media handle that documents different individuals’ stories of struggle and triumphs, has deleted a post featuring actor Sanjana Sanghi and her domestic workers. The page faced a severe backlash for Sanjana‘s post where she spoke about how she has been helping her domestic staff during the pandemic and also got them vaccinated. She also spoke about how her staff was very helpful to her during the pandemic, and now she is returning the favour. This piece with Sanjana was reportedly a promoted collaboration with a beer brand.
Just hours after the HOB post went live on their social media platforms, Diet Sabya called out the post, highlighting how HOB and Sanjana have ended up using her three domestic workers as props to improve her own image. Diet Sabya is a sharp-tongued anonymous Instagram account dedicated to exposing imitations or appropriations, even blatant copies, in fashion.
